We'll Walrus Be Friends Friendship Card

by Joanne James30. September 2019 07:00

Happy Monday everyone! I am starting the week with a card for the current challenge over at Festive Friday that is also my second using this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch: 

    

I chose friendship, blue and orange as my 3 items from the Festive Friday inspo list and made this sweet card using one of my favourite sets in the annual catalogue, 'We'll Walrus Be Friends':

I stamped my main image on a Whisper White stitched oval, popping my goldfish up on dimensionals, and coloured it with my Blends and a liberal dose of clear Wink of Stella on the iceberg. I popped this onto a base embossed with the High Seas embossing folder. Both the iceberg sparkle and embossed waves are difficult to see on my photo, but they add so much to this card in real life. I love this card - I am going to send it to one of the James Juniors in their school bag one day when they need a little cheering up!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

We'll Walrus Be Friends Walrus Thank You Card

Today I'm sharing a card for the current sketch challenge over at Fab Friday:

This is one of those great sketches that is so versatile with so many possibilities. I used the opportunity to break out a new stamp set - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

We'll Walrus Be Friends - I love a punny sentiment and am finding myself doing more and more colouring these days, so 'We'll Walrus Be Friends' was always going to be on my list! A great set with words for lots of occasions and images that are small enough to colour quickly but also give a satisfying few minutes of relaxation, this is a great fun set. 

High Seas - I coloured my image in with my Stampin' Blends and I embossed the mat layer on my card base with the High Seas embossing folder to tie in with the waves on my stamped image. I don't tend to use a lot of texture on my cards, but I love the extra layer of detail this embossing gives. 

Not Quite CAS - I started out intending this card to be my entry for the current Less Is More challenge where the challenge this week is to use orange, aqua and white on your card, but decided once I'd added the embossed layer that this probably wasn't clean and simple enough for the strict rules that the LIM ladies follow - back to the drawing board on that one! I do love the fresh colour combo though - here it is if you would like to save it for future reference:
